Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - February 9, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta A National Geographic special Volcanos on 'The Violent Earth' DR. HAROUN TAZIEFF The uncontrollable forces of nature which manifest themselves in volcanos and earthquakes are explored on the latest episode of the CTV Television Network's "National Geographic Society" special "The Violent Earth" telecasting Sunday, February 11 at 7:30 p.m. The program concentrates on investigating the reasons for such violent and devastating activity in the earth and also the men who study these reactions. Guide to "The Violent Earth" is 60-year old French volcanologist, Dr. Haroun Taz-ieff. Author of several books and numerous papers on volcanos, Tazieff leads two groups of scientists and students into an active Mt. Etna and Nyi- rapo-r^o Volcano. On Mt. Etna, situated on ths northeast part of the island of Sir-Jly, Tazieff, accompanied by a te-m of chemists, physicists pjid atomic scientists, is seen descending into the crater to collect samples of the volcanic gases. During the 1971 eruption of Etna, the volcanologist filmed as the molten lava swept down the mountainside devouring homes, crushing walls and bridges and burning farm lands. As the inhabitants of Fomazzo and Sandolphio sought refuge from the lava, Tazieff and his group sent information ou the eruption via radio to the Smithsonian Center for Short lived Phenomena in Cambridge, Massachusetts. The Center acts as a clearing Mary Chapman sings This Land theme The face behind the(voice' MARY CHAPMAN More and more viewers of CBC-TV's This Land series (Wednesdays at 8:00 p.m. on the network) have been writing in to inquire about the singer of the title song. The voice belongs to an attractive young woman named Mary Chapman who, says executive producer John Lackie is "the 'voice' of This Land. She's been an identifiable part of the program since the beginning. Mary's always been part of it and this season she's been able to devote more time to it, and we can expect to see more of her in the future." Miss Chapman, who's in h*r mid-20s, is a teacher at Seneca College and is now in her third year with This Land. The first year she appeared at the beginning of the program singing the title song. In the second year there were appearances with the late John Hopkins, CARPET CLEAROUTS SHAG (Medium) White, Green Tweed, Tone on Tone Green. 25 oz. nylon. Extremely durable.......SQ. YD.

Her television career began in 1965 when she appeared on the Don Gray show which came out of CFPL London, Ont., but long before that she had had some professional experience both as an actress and a singer. She began acting in her teens in high-school plays and then combined acting and singing when she went on to university (Western University, where she majored in English and graduated with a degree). In the early 60s she teamed for a whi'e with the singer Valdy and acted in little theatre in the London area and sang at coffee houses. Some of the dramas and musical comedies she's played in include: Look Back In Anger. Star Spangled Girl, Fiddler On the Roof, and Dark of the Moon. Her first contribution to This Land came when John Lackie, who had produced the Don Gray Show for CFPL, sent her a song be thought he might use as a theme for This Land. "Somehow," recalls Mary, "it just wouldn't work for me. It was a song for a man. I didn't feel a woman could sing it with the right feeling." Paul Mills, a composer friend with whom she had sung at university as a folk-song duo, heard about her problem and one Saturday morning in the basement of her home wrote the song that became the theme for This Land. house for data on worldwide natural disasters and both analyses the information and disseminates it throughout the world again to scientists and other research institutions. In the second expedition, Dr. Tazieff leads a group of American high - school students from Kinshasa in the Congo to the volcano infested Virunga Mountains and finally to Nyirsgon-go. The last eight miles of then* journey was a hot climb through jungle up the side of the volcano. The top cf Nyiragongo Is 11,500 feet above sea level. It is cold, damp, rainy and miserable - but for the students and scientists the hardships are worthwhile. Nyiragongo contains one of the three active lava lakes in the world. The lava lake 5s one thousand feet down the sheer wall of the crater. The descent is first made by a group of professional mountain climbers who set up safety lines. Without warning and accompanied by a tremendous roar, a new vent opens in the lake. Tazieff, wearing a silver heat resistant suit and suspended by a long rope goes down into the fire pit. During his first attempt Tazieff is almost overcome by the poisonous gases when his gas mask malfunctions. Eventually the scientists are able to complete their experiments. At the end of the expedition, Tazieff discusses with the students why he studies volcanos and the nature of energies that are occasionally unleashed to create the violent earth.
